Barefoot Will Mentor

Friday, June 2, 2017


Ed Howe (fiddle)
Jamie Oshima (guitar, foot percussion, piano, vocals)

Barefoot has an energetic take on traditional folk and contemporary pop & electronica. This band is fired by improv and original compositions with long tap roots in New England and Acadian tunes. You may recognize Ed Howe from his previous well-known band Perpetual e-Motion. In his new band, Barefoot, he is joined by the amazingly talented Jamie Oshima. Whether having fun with improv, blending in pop, beat boxing, Québécois-style foot percussion, or using their multitude of instruments, these guys are great.
Watch this improvised piece by Barefoot.

Will Mentor

From Massachusetts via Vermont, just about our all-time favorite caller returns to Montreal. Travelling throughout North America and calling to hundreds in one room at events such as the Dance Flurry, Will is in high demand for both his contras and squares.

" A great teacher, endlessly amusing, and someone who has all his calling priorities straight! "


Watch Will in action.
